It’s emails like this that remind me just how much I love the ’67 Beetle community. Thank you, Sam. Our timing lights our pointed in your direction, bud. If I’m ever back in Anderson, SC, I have to take this gem for a drive.
21 years ago, I purchased my ’67 Beetle. I am the second owner. With the exception of a few things, the car is pretty close to original.
When I bought the car, the previous owner had a fender bender (left rear) that was repaired wrong. Nobody could see it, but me, and for all these years, it’s driven me crazy. Not only that it was repaired wrong, but to repair it correctly meant taking away from the originality.
About 3 years ago, I ran across 1967beetle.com. Thanks to you & all the ’67 family, I began looking at my bug differently .
To repair it correctly was simply maintenance that needed to have been done long ago, but I didn’t have the encouragement, and knowledge that came from listening and studying all the things 1967beetle.com has shared.
I have in my files, everything you have posted on these great cars, from correct colors, combinations, parts, etc. to opinions on total restoration and/or leaving it original, or as in my case as original as possible.
